We aren’t given dreams to help us sleep better at night.

They aren’t there for us to feel warm and content.

We aren’t given dreams as a distraction from the pains of the world.

And they aren’t meant to be used as a depressing comparison to our current reality.

We are given dreams to give us something to aspire to.

To work towards.

To challenge ourselves.

They are meant to inspire action.

To lift our sights.

To stir the heart.

They help us to understand what’s really possible.

If only we will have the courage to pursue them.

And the persistence to never give up on them.
